On some Genesis models, high-quality synthetic leather with a suede look is used. The basis of this vegan leather is a microfiber-fleece made from recycled polyester, conventional polyester and polyurethane. The difference to other artificial leathers is the raw material used and the production. Thanks to a special processing process, toxic chemicals such as DMF or carbon can no longer remain in the material. Only vegan solvents are added. Industrial pollution (waste, water and exhaust air) is controlled according to strict guidelines and carbon is also drastically reduced. The manufacturing process is complex and time-consuming, the material is just as expensive as it is high-quality and cannot offer any price advantages over leather. The synthetic leather feels soft, is antistatic, durable, easy to clean, breathable, elastic, non-allergenic and can be stretched easily and without wrinkles. Compared to leather, microfiber leather is more breathable, more slip-resistant and, apart from any cleaning that may be required, easier to care for.
For some time now, people have shared the stereotype about artificial leather that it is a cheap copy of animal skins and only imitates it optically. We hope that we can shine a new light with our new, high-quality microfiber leather on artificial leather.
